    If the trip was unannounced how is it that the news media is covering it?
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    It was unannounced until they announced it.

    A few years back (I wanna say 2005) George Bush made a surprise visit to Iraq on thanksgiving to serve the troops dinner. No one knew he was going other then like 3 people and the pilots of AF1. It was not till he was on the ground that anyone was told that he was there. National Geographic talked about it on one of their specials about AF1.

    In this case Obummer took the media with him and did it to try to further bill him self as the one who took out Bin Laden. It was just a stunt for him to try to make him self look better.
